Shylita's splinter

I've been sculpting something I've wanted to do a while now,but now was the right moment. I've seen some really neat interpretations .. you know how those can stop you in your tracks wondering if you have something to bring to the table. Also I always avoid a big trend unless its something that goes along with the already estabished goals of my work. If it sticks and nags you over 2 years go on and make it I say!

Its conjoined twins! Well... my pair are less about the actaul physical conjoined twins and more about duality. The "splinter" in the title refers to a shizm in Shylita or an absorbed twin. Kinda facinating that many of us are meant to be born twins ,but absorb the weaker one in utero! I longed for a sister too and have an imaginary freind/shadow sister "Rosa" maybe she could be a remnant of that?

I happened to be lucky enough to meet real conjoined twins when I was age 11 and I thought they must be the luckiest girls ever! They were curly headed blonds about age 5. Perfect little girls who happened to be joined at the shoulder and torso.

Arnt they pretty nestled together?:D
These are about finished except I want to felt some caps for them and had to order the right pale soft color.Anyway enjoy the wip photos for now;)
